Minimalist Parenting Giveaway

Sometimes the world lines things up in such a way that you feel the need to shout THANK YOU.

Now is one of those times.


Minimalist Parenting was nominated for two Iris Awards: Game Changer and Philanthropic Work (for our #HelpWomenAtRisk project with the ONE Campaign).

To be recognized by -- and to celebrate with -- our peers in this way is so powerful. I can't tell you what this means to us.

Instead of trying to find the words, Christine and I decided to give away some books! To say thank you to everyone who has supported us, especially you, who have given us a voice. To celebrate Mother's Day with a reminder to put yourself back on your priority list.

And to toss a fraction of the love and gratitude we're feeling back into the world.

To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment on this post. 

(Please fill out the Rafflecopter widget so Christine and I can keep track of the entries between both our blogs.)

Thank you. For everything.
